    Wal-Mart and Sam's Club are two big box stores I have no use for.

    Normally I'd agree. But I suppose they'll be the cheapest cut-rate price place for DJI drones. Smaller retailers beware I guess....

    I don't think the smaller retailers have anything to worry about from either store. Just take a good look at their customer base. At least 75% of those that shop in those stores make less $16,000.00 a year including their employees.

    LOL, I know quite a few affluent people who shop at Wal-Mart. Some people achieve affluence by being misers and cheapskates.
    My brother for example, recently moved into his custom built 8000 sq ft retirement home, has a 2500 sq ft "cabin" near Park City, Ut., and drives a $75,000 car. He and his wife were doing cartwheels a year ago because a Super Wal mart opened near them. My brother will be the first to tell you that he is a financial success because he is a cheap bastard.

    100% false.

    "According to the data, the average Wal-Mart shopper is a white, 50-year-old female with an annual household income of $53,125.

    That's no lie. When the SHTF I was looking for some 22LR and found Midway had CCI Mini Mags, out of stock but back order ok. I was shocked they would take a BO but said what the hell and ordered a case. Took over a year but I got them a few months ago. Wish I had ordered 2. About .06 per round. Haven't seen anything close to that for a long time.

    Yeah, I remember the 19.95 for 550 days. Never see that again.

    Apologies N017RW.
